Baked Brie in Puff Pastry. Holiday Appetizer Series Part II

This baked brie is a snap to make and will add color and flavor to any cheese platter. I made it two different ways and both were equally good.

First thaw out your puff pastry as per box instructions. Then, using a rolling pin, roll it flat. Place your brie in the middle of the pastry and mark the edges with a fork. Remove the brie, leaving a marked circle in the middle.



Option One: In the circle place whole pecans, dried cranberries and some apricot jam.


Option Two: In the circle place sliced pear and chopped walnuts. Drizzle maple syrup over the top.


Place your brie back on top of the circle and fold the pastry over the sides of the brie.


Turn brie over so the seam is at the bottom and place on a baking sheet.

Option One: Place some pecans and cranberries on top to decorate.

Option Two: Place some walnuts on top and drizzle with more maple syrup.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve and enjoy!
